Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/19/2012 -- The level of activity in the Japanese construction industry declined during the review period (2006-2010) as a result of the saturation of key construction markets following a continuous decline in birth rates since the 1980s. This has caused Japan to have an aging and shrinking population whose needs are already effectively catered to and therefore have little demand for new construction, a situation which has resulted in the country's residential, institutional and commercial construction markets declining as a result of saturation. Furthermore, Japan's infrastructure construction market is struggling due to the fact that, as the country already has highly developed rail, road, air and port infrastructure networks, there is little demand for new facilities; while the country's industrial construction market is declining due to Japan's leading position as a manufacturing hub being threatened by emerging economies such as China and South Korea. Finally, the onset of the global financial crisis further exacerbated Japan's weak market conditions, leading the country's construction industry to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X.XX% during the review period.
